2017 INDEPEDENCE DAY CELEBRATIONS

Dear Leaders of the DFW Filipino-American Community

On behalf of the Philippine Republic Day Celebration Inc. (PRDC) Officers and Board members, it is our pleasure to announce the 119th Anniversary of the Philippine Independence from Spain. The festivities consists of the Pista sa Nayon (Barrio Fiesta) that will be held on June 10, 2017 at the Traders Village in Grand Prairie and culminates in the formal Independence Gala that will be held at the Westin Hotel in Dallas, Texas on June 18, 2016. The annual ecumenical celebration will be presented by various religious community.

PRDC cordially invites you or your representative to join in the celebration of freedom. Filipinos are freedom loving people and the island’s history is sprinkled with struggles for freedom, be it from foreign colonial rulers such as Spain, England and the United States. Such was the courage and bravery of Filipino soldiers that World War 2 hero, General Douglas McArthur said: “Give me ten thousand Filipino soldiers and I will conquer the world”.

The Pista Sa Nayon & Annual Gala banquet are opportunities for the North Texas Community Leaders and representatives to engage with other Filipino-American groups as well as invited local government officials. Many different and diverse organizations from Filipino-American backgrounds are represented as well as guests from other Asian communities. Outstanding Filipino Community leaders will be recognized in the Gala with “Gintong Alay Award; “Perlas ng Silangan Award” and other community related awards. You are enjoined to send members of your organization who deserve to be recognized for their service to the Filipino- American community as well as exemplary accomplishments in their fields of endeavor. Please submit bios listing personal as well as community service and accomplishments to Dr. Leo Tipay, the PRDC awards chair.

We are also requesting for support whether as a donor of prizes to our sports events, singing contest, Ms Independence or to advertise in the souvenir program. Please send your advertisements by May 20, 2016 to the address below.
On behalf of the PRDC board, officers and advisers, “Salamat Po” for your continued support.

Sincerely,
Nap Ramirez
Executive Director/Interim President
